Sainteloc Racing has revealed plans to enter the full Blancpain GT Series with two cars in both the Sprint and Endurance Cups.

The French team will run a pair of Audi R8 LMS GT3s for the full ten-round season, in the Pro category for Sprint Cup and in both Pro and Pro-Am in the Endurance Cup.

Christopher Haase and Markus Winkelhock will both form part of the team’s lineup this season with Haase entering his third season with the squad.

Sainteloc won the Total 24 Hours of Spa last season with an Audi GT3 driven by Haase, Jules Gounon and eventual Intercontinental GT Challenge champion Winkelhock.

Its winning car only competed at the Paul Ricard and Spa races with the team running just one car through the rest of the season.

The team becomes one of only a handful of publicly-announced Sprint Cup entries for this season, with fewer than five teams committing to the series so far.

In addition to its Blancpain GT program, Sainteloc also plans to run cars in the newly-renamed GT4 France.

The team plans to campaign a trio of Audi R8 LMS GT4s in the series, which has five French events along with a race at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. 

It ran two Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MRs in series last season.
